Customization and flexible manufacturing are often considered as the main competitive advantage of SMEs. Implementing right automation concepts to increase productivity in manufacturing SMEs needs significantly more effort, due to their limited resources. That is why, it is strongly recommended for firms to interact through networks.

Therefore, this paper develops a guideline for systematic productivity improvement within an innovative collaboration in regards to automation in SMEs.
